Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Satiety Impact [ Time Frame: up to day 3 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Breakfast containing of oat-based breakfast cereal will cause people to feel more satiated compared to a breakfast containing of ready-to-eat oat-based breakfast cereal. Appetite and satiety will be measured with a Visual Analog Scale.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Breakfast Test Cereal 1, Oat based

Test cereal 1, Oat based breakfast cereal- you will be randomly presented with a breakfast consisting of either:

Oat-based breakfast cereal with lactose-free, fat-free milk to drink or ready-to-eat cereal in lactose-free, fat -free milk with water to drink. Then you will complete a visual analog scale at 30, 60, 120. 180, and 240 minutes following the start of breakfast meal.

Other: Breakfast Test Cereal 1, Oat based
The study design is a crossover trial with each subject receiving one of the cereals in each of three visits separated by at least a week will be enrolled to investigate the satiety impact of three breakfast cereals: (a) one serving of oat based breakfast cereal 1.
Other: Breakfast Test Cereal 2, Oat-based
The study design is a crossover trial with each subject receiving one of the cereals in each of three visits separated by at least a week will be enrolled to investigate the satiety impact of three breakfast cereals: (b) an equicaloric amount of Oat based breakfast cereal 2.
Other: Ready-to-eat cereal
The study design is a crossover trial with each subject receiving one of the cereals in each of three visits separated by at least a week will be enrolled to investigate the satiety impact of three breakfast cereals: (c) an equicaloric amount of the ready-to-eat cold cereal.
Experimental: Breakfast Test Cereal 2, Oat-based

Test Cereal 2, Oat-based breakfast cereal. You will be randomly presented with a breakfast consisting of either:

Detailed Description:

The subjects will be randomly assigned to one of these three breakfasts and then given a Visual analogue scales of hunger and satiety which will be completed at baseline, 30, 60, 120, 180, and 240 minutes. Subjects will return on 2 other days separated by at least a week to repeat the breakfast test.
